Flying to Trat Airport for Koh Kood (Laem Sok Pier)

Another option for getting to Koh Kood is to fly from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport to Trat Airport and then travel 45 minutes by road to Laem Sok Pier.

Bangkok Airways, with 2 flights daily, is the only airline that operates this route.

You can jump straight to each section:-

Flight Arrivals and Boat Connections to Koh Kood

If you take the morning PG305 lunchtime flight from Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK), arriving at Trat Airport (TDX) at 12.40, you can connect to Boonsiri’s 2nd catamaran departure of the day at 14.20, price 600bt per person. Koh Kut Express does have a boat at 13.30, 500bt per person but this would be cutting things very fine.

The afternoon PG307 flight, arriving at 16.00, does not make any connections to any boats. You will need to stay a night in Trat at one of the many guesthouses. There is only one small resort at Laem Sok Pier itself, Check and Chill.

To get from Trat Airport to Laem Sok Pier, you will need to pre-book your private transfer as explained below.

Boats from Koh Kood and Flight Departures

To connect to the lunchtime PG306 flight departing at 13.10, you take the Boonsiri morning boat at 09.00, which docks at Laem Sok Pier at 10.00. You could also use the new 09.30 Koh Kut Express which docks at around 10.45, 500bt per person but again, this is tight.

If taking the afternoon PG308 flight departing at 16.30, the last boat off Koh Kood is at 13.00, the Koh Kut Express speedboat, duration an hour, price 600bt. If you don’t like speedboats, then your alternative is the 2nd daily service from Boonsiri which leaves at 12.00, also 600bt and an hour’s travel time.

To get from Laem Sok Pier to Trat Airport, you can use a pre-booked private transfer.

Please see here for the full Koh Kood ferry and speedboat timetables.

Private Transfer by Car or Minibus from Trat Airport to Laem Sok

From Trat Airport to Laem Sok Pier and the reverse, it is easiest to use private transfers to connect to the different boats.

These private transfers to/from Laem Sok Pier are priced at 1,400bt for a SUV style car (Innova, Fortuner, Xpander) for 2/3 adults or 2 adults, 2 child. It’s 1,700bt for a minibus for 4 to 7/8 persons.

We can organise everything for you, meeting passengers at Arrivals at Trat Airport with a name sign or directly off the boats on their return. Journey time is around 45 minutes.

Please do contact us here for all your private transfer requirements.

Payment for the private transfer is with an initial deposit via Thai bank transfer or PayPal invoice and then the balance in THB cash on the day. No need for a PayPal account, you can use a credit card with them too.

Payment for the boats are upfront, their cost added to the same bank transfer or invoice as the deposit.

Share Minibus from Trat Airport to Laem Sok

There is a share minibus from Trat Airport to Laem Sok Pier, which coordinates with the PG305 lunchtime flight from BKK Suvarnabhumi landing at 12.40. It connects to the 14.20 catamaran service. It’s 1,000bt per person including the boat ticket, with kids 4 and under at 400bt. You are delivered to your resort by free share shuttle taxi once you arrive on Koh Kood.

The return, same price, is available using the 09.00 boat only, also with collection from your resort for transfer to the departure pier. That links you to the PG306 13.10 lunchtime flight back to BKK.

We can book this for you, payment in full upfront by PayPal (with processing charges) or bank transfer.
